Typography course project. Involved ink illustrations, typography, book design, tea staining.
Challenge: Choose a typeface and create a zine using it in any context, whether it covers the history behind it, or represents a genre that fits the nature of the typeface.
Solution: This zine was created in a journal-like fashion to express the nature of the old-style typeface, Caslon. Antique illustrations of plants and flowers pair well with the traditional look of the typeface, making a scientific journal the perfect format for communicating the history and character of Caslon. Each plant was drawn with black ink on newsprint, and the final zine pages were stained with tea to further the concept of antiquity.
